Andi is a really awesome guitar instructor. I started guitar lessons with him with absolutely no experience playing an instrument or knowing how to read sheet music. But because he is really patient, knowledgeable, and at ease with teaching, I have been able to pick up how to play the guitar and reading the tab handouts he gives me after each lesson. He goes at the students pace and is willing to change his lessons to teach what new songs I want to learn. After each lesson I am always inspired and reminded why I wanted to take up guitar lessons in the first place. Andi was the very first instructor I met and Im glad I did. I could not recommend him highly enough as an instructor.
I feel grateful for finding Garrick on Thumbtack! He has taught my 8 year old son, who is a beginner at guitar.
Garrick's infectious love for life and music has really inspired my son. He has offered a great mix of fun and technique during lessons and my son was quickly able to play songs and enjoy playing his instrument.
I would highly recommend Garrick as a teacher.
I have been taking guitar lessons from David Williams for a few months now. I always look forward to my classes with him. He is a professional who is patient and understanding. Besides instructing me on guitar, he is also teaching me how to sing! He teaches me what I need to learn on the guitar in order to advance my knowledge. He is also open to me bringing in songs I want to play. He is a supportive teacher who is sincerely interested in his student's learning. He breaks down complicated musical concepts in a step by step process that enhances student confidence and mastery. I highly recommend David Williams.
Sedat is an excellent teacher for my 10 year old. He has lots of patience and knows how to teach kids. He is able to help with easier ways to teach chords and makes the class enjoyable. My child loves his class and he encourages to pick their favorite songs to play. I would highly recommend Sedat for kids guitar lessons.
I would recommend Dylan to anyone looking for guitar lessons for themselves and their children! He is wonderfully patient and very knowledgeable. He will work with you on any song you like and use it to teach technique and theory, thus making it a lot more interesting. We moved about 1.5 hours away and still prefer making the trek for lessons over finding someone local to us!
Robert has taken me from a pure beginner at classical guitar a year ago, to being able to not only play several interesting pieces, but also understand technical aspects, how to learn, and how to practice.
He is patient, and yet pushes for improvement. He is easy to work with.
I am a beginner and didn't know much about playing Guitar and Music theory. She is a great teacher, she always has a way to make me understand the critical aspects.
Within no time Judy has brought me to a level where I could read music and play basic chords and make transitions. Playing guitar is a combination of the lessons you get from your guitar teacher and practicing a lot, judy has been really good in making me focus on the right aspects of guitar playing. So far everything has been great. Looking forward to more great lessons.
Denis is an excellent Guitar teacher. The best quality of his , which stands out is his patience . It's of utmost importance for a teacher to have patience when teaching a beginner like me. I've just had 3 sessions until now and I've been really impressed by him.
We have been working with Ms. White since January 2016. My boys, ages 6 and 7 walked out of their very first lesson knowing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and this quick, concrete “take away” gave them a sense of excitement and confidence! Ms. White is very thoughtful with her instruction. She has realistic and responsive goals--like helping accommodate a variety of sports seasons and understanding the difference between her student’s temperament and attention span. She has nurtured an intrinsic and age appropriate interest and exposure to the world of piano playing. My boys pick up and play piano on their own and they love teaching their father and me their new skills. I would highly recommend Ms. White for piano lessons.
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform.
I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song.
Kevin is fantastic: patient, smart, and kind. The beginner's guitar book we are using each week keeps me challenged and engaged. I love it! Best, Kevin's own guitar skills and artistic flair are mind-boggling and inspiring! I highly recommend him.
I highly recommend Bob as a music teacher for beginners, folks who play for enjoyment and professional musicians.
He enhances the student's experience by focusing on the music student wants to learn. At the same time he intertwines ear-training and music theory with technique.
Bob is a great guitar and music teacher. He was my first guitar teacher. In later years mentored me on how to teach music.
I had been playing bass for about 5 years when I started to work with Jerry. I had developed some poor habits with my left hand that needed to be corrected. Jerry's persistence and patience with me have paid off, so my technique is much improved. We have also worked on developing my ear and theory in order to figure out the bass line for songs. Whether your a beginner or experienced player, I can highly recommend Jerry.
Mark has been teaching our daughter for three years. She was only 10 years old when she started and was full of questions and hopes of instant mastery. Mark was really patient, answering her questions and building success into each week to sustain her morale while she learned that it doesn't happen overnight. While she is still on the road to mastery, she has grown a trust in Mark to let him set the pace. He reciprocates by encouraging her to practice and influence the pace.
I also enjoy that Mark has the flexibility to work with our daughter. His approach allows her to pick some song she likes. He can listen to the song and adapt it into a relevant lesson or teach her the chords and allow her to learn the song. This mixed with the variety of classics and Christian pop songs will make for a well-rounded skill set for our daughter.
I have the opportunity each week to watch one of Mark's long time students play and am really impressed at his comfort and skill playing a variety of styles.
I have been taking guitar lessons at the studio since it opened. The facility is amazing and all instructors I have met are friendly, professional musicians. I love taking lessons here because they are tailored to fit my style and goals. I would and do recommend the studio to students of any age/ skill level.
I absolutely LOVE working with Michael and learning guitar from him. I've tried many times to learn before, and it's never quite stuck. Michael has a way of making difficult concepts seem easy and I'm finally able to grasp music theory. It's always challenging learning something new because I (as I'm sure a lot of people do) feel silly when I mess up or a little dumb if I don't do something right, and Michael makes me feel comfortable and able to make mistakes and try new chords or scales, or whatever it may be. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Michael if you want to learn guitar or just improve your skills!
